They can be used in place of most other beans in dishes like curries, salads and soups. These beans have a slightly sweet taste and are often made into a paste in Asian desserts.

To cook them, simply boil the beans until tender — about 20–30 minutes. Alternatively, they can be steamed in a pressure cooker for approximately five minutes.

Mung beans can also be enjoyed sprouted, both raw and cooked.

The sprouted beans are best enjoyed in stir-fry meals and curries.
